ISTQB® Certified Tester - Advanced Level (Technical Test Analyst) - Compact

Categories Test & Quality Assurance

General Information
3 Days

This seminar provides the basis for taking the exam to qualify as an "ISTQB® Certified Tester, Advanced Level, Technical Test Analyst". You will learn how important testing close to development is and become familiar with various lifecycle models. You will practice special testing techniques that will help you to implement testing efficiently and with a sufficient scope while taking non-functional requirements into consideration.

Upon completion of this seminar, you will be able to recognize errors early on in development instead of at the end in an elaborate system test. You will be able to establish testing close to development in your projects and perform the testing successfully.

Please note that further preparation at the end of each seminar day is recommended to succeed in passing the exam.
